Transubstantating what?

September 28, 2010

A Pew study shows that  less  “religious” americans compared to “atheists” know what transubstantation means. Not surprinsigly I would add. I know few human beings with less than a PhD that not even know the word, much less its meaning.  The remarkable fact of this study is that of more than 3k surveyees,  86 % declare belief in god or  a “superior power”(nuclear bombs?).

Americans dont know much about anything.  My favourite result:: where did potatoes originate as a domesticated crop?? 90 % of US surveyees answer …Idaho… you know?
